Feature Summary

The microbial ecosystem in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract has emerged as a “virtual organ system,” with growing recognition of its diverse significance in health maintenance.*1 GI microbiota help support and maintain healthy innate and cell-mediated immune systems.2* They also help maintain the integrity of a healthy intestinal barrier by helping detoxify the body’s natural toxins and organizing the body’s response to cellular debris.*3 In addition to helping in the maintenance of gastrointestinal health, it may also help support a healthy body weight and normal glucose metabolism already within the normal range.*4,5,6,7

Probiotics have diverse functions in health support, by modulating a normal immune response and maintaining normal, healthy intestinal barrier functions.* Mixtures of probiotics appear to have additional benefits over single strains, perhaps because of synergistic function.*8,9,10,11

Probiotic-Pro 12 has 12 bacterial species, each carefully selected to withstand both gastric acid and high-bile concentrations, and for their benefits in health support.*

†Requires refrigeration for maximum potency.
